  1. Ultimate Normative Foundations: The Case for Aquinas's Personalist Natural Law.R. Mary Hayden Lemmons - 2011 - Lexington Books.
    Ultimate Normative Foundations: The Case for Personalist Natural Law Across the Globe explores the indefeasibility and universality of certain moral obligations and proscriptions. Rose Mary Hayden Lemmons defends the personalist natural law formulated by Aquinas as a normative foundation that is able to both meet those objections and specify interpersonal obligations as well as juridical obligations concerning inalienable rights, religious liberty, and Just War theory. Academics concerned with philosophy, theology, or law will find this book indispensable.

    Equality, Gender, and John Paul II.R. Mary Hayden Lemmons - 2002 - Logos: A Journal of Catholic Thought and Culture 5 (3):111-130.
    John Paul II seeks to maintain gender equality by noting how Original Sin produced inequality, by arguing that equality does not preclude differences in gender roles, and by positing that femininity and masculinity play equally indispensable roles in salvation history.

    The Indeterminacy Thesis and the Normativity of Practical Reason.R. Mary Hayden Lemmons - 2011 - Proceedings of the American Catholic Philosophical Association 85:265-282.
    This paper argues against the indeterminacy thesis that attempts to defeat traditional natural law by asserting that specific moral norms cannot be based on human nature. As put by Jean Porter (Nature as Reason 2005, 338): “the intelligibilities of human nature underdetermine their forms of expression, and that is why this theory does not yield a comprehensive set of determinate moral norms, compelling to all rational persons.” However, if this were so, one could adopt any morality with impunity from nature’s (...)

    Are the Love Precepts Really Natural Law’s Primary Precepts?R. Mary Hayden Lemmons - 1992 - Proceedings of the American Catholic Philosophical Association 66:45-71.
    According to Aquinas, the love of God and neighbor can be either based on Christian revelation or natural knowledge. If the former, the love precepts are the primary precepts of Christian morality; if the latter, the love precepts are the primary precepts of natural law.

    Reason in Context.R. Mary Hayden Lemmons - 2009 - Proceedings of the American Catholic Philosophical Association 83:155-172.
    This paper seeks to counter the argument that since Aquinas’s natural law obligations necessarily presuppose the ability of practical reason to prescribeand proscribe for the sake of eudaimonia, it is irrational in cases of inescapable suffering to characterize any natural law obligation as indefeasible. Four possiblerebuttals of this argument from suffering are examined; but only three are judged successful. Their key premises are that, as Aristotle and Aquinas pointed out, this life’s eudaimonia is defined in terms of human nature and (...)
